A woman, who grew up as a Muslim in the Middle East, spelled out what jihad is really about in a video that has now gone viral.
The nearly nine-minute video was posted Saturday on a Facebook page called “Silence is Consent,” and, as of Wednesday, has already garnered 360,000 views.
The unnamed woman begins her lesson with “seeing how people won’t stop being dimwits, I’m going to have to spell this out for you.”
“Islam is not a race, it’s a religion,” she continued, adding that it doesn’t mean you’re a racist if you say that Muslims have to follow Muhammad as a role model.
“For the person that said ‘saying all Muslims are terrorists is like saying all Italians are in the Mafia,’ you’re a dimwit,” she said in the video, railing against teaching a “sugar coated” version of Islam in schools, leaving out what Muhammad actually did according to Islamic texts.
“What did Muhammad do? He was a rapist, a pedophile, a mass murderer,” the woman said. “Not to mention a warmonger, liar, cheater, thief, adulterer.”
“If you fall for this jihadist self-betterment crap,” she said, her temper flaring, “you deserve anything that comes to you.”
She then broke down the word “jihad,” its Arabic roots, history, and Islamic interpretation, leaving no doubt as to the violent nature of the word.
After comparing the murder, pillaging and sex slavery from the Quran to the methods used by the Islamic State, the woman said, “They’re not bad Muslims.”
“They’re perfect Muslims,” she continued. “I have never seen more developed Muslims in my life, and I grew up as one.”
“You want to teach about Islam, teach about Muhammad’s sex slaves,” the woman said, becoming emotional. Calling feminists and LGBT activists “you hypocrites,” she spoke of women being stoned and butchered, and “people who are just accused of being gay in Muslim countries” being thrown off of buildings.
